On a brisk January morning, UCIPD police officers and security officers set up a breakfast station at the UCI Medical Center, not only as a gracious gesture to the medical staff coming into work, but as a means to engage in casual conversation over donuts and hot coffee. Staff members did not hesitate to help themselves with free breakfast and an opportunity to ask officers questions including the recent announcement that the Orange County Sheriff’s Department will be clearing the homeless encampment along the two-mile stretch of the Santa Ana River Trail. With 500-1000 people residing in the area, staff members were anxious to know how it will affect transients roaming onto the medical center campus. Lieutenant Frisbee assured them that the Police Department was well aware of the situation and would be staffing additional officers to ensure the safety of the community. Leon Roach, Director of Capital Design & Construction Projects, even made a visit to greet the officers and welcome staff members to the casual event. It was an incredibly successful morning because over 120 cups of coffee and 84 donuts were served. To continue forging strong relationships with UCIMC staff members, we will host more events in the future.
